Kate Chopin (1850–1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories.

The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.

American writer Kate Chopin first gained recognition for her 19th-century masterpiece, The Awakening. The 23 stories in Bayou Folk feature Chopin’s rich tales of ordinary people searching for love and a good future in uncertain times. A Night in Acadie tells 21 tales about New Orleans, in all its colourful diversity. Together, these stories show a writer at the height of her form and are a treasure trove of Southern manners, character and mores, from the plantations to the dance halls.
